In my professional life I am a musician (singer) and a tired but generally optimistic Managing Director of a community choir that focuses on the works of J.S. Bach and other composers from the 16th and 17th centuries. In my next life,if I ever get to retire, I am dreaming of writing my own stories, rather than spending all my writing time crafting elegant fund-raising letters and functioning as an the choir's main online communicator. My partner and I spend summer vacations playing scrabble and fishing, sometimes choosing a day at the board over a day at the lake. I love word play, but I am a terrible speller.
